Compliment the falcons?


We’re lucky to have a win. Based on performance we’re the worst team in the South.

Loomis hired a 11-37 HC and traded away the 1st round pick betting on the come, and didn’t even bring in McDaniel for an interview.

It’s a matter of when not if both need to be run out of here as it’s obvious Payton was the key to Saints success last 16 years.

In hindsight the Saints should’ve hired an offensive minded head coach due to the lack of offense last season. I personally wanted Doug Pederson since he lives in Louisiana.

I understand why the front office wanted to promote from within, so I can’t blame them either.

What a bunch of sad sacks.
Reading through the Gameday comments, you’d swear we were winless and devoid of talent. Look, we have a new coach, an OC who didn’t initially want the job but then decided to take it, a broken QB, injuries to key players, and our offense barely played with one another until the first game. Learn to look at things from an unbiased standpoint and you would understand that this is pretty much where we should be.

... I sure wish we could score points like the Falcons. :covri: :mecry:

Flame away. :cry:
Right now I’d say they’re slightly a better team. Unfortunately

They’re playing harder, their QB is much more effective, their OL is executing better, their coach seems to have some fire in his belly, they’re making adjustments.

I mean they still suck, but not as bad as we do.

Now let me go throw up

I hope we dont have the gall to call this team a super bowl team. What a superbowl team would do:
1. use our "great" defense with(cost us 2 number 1 draft choices)davenport to pressure their QB and shut down their running
2. use our QB to take advantage of our great receivers to score about 100 points
3. Have an offensive line that open holes for RB's and protects our injured QB.
What we can do: Rest Winston 3-6 weeks to recover and strengthen back. But nothing else other than trade davenport for a guard
We are in a bad position. We threw all our chips in and we lost. We might think tanking to get high draft choices and trade a few of our aging and oft injured veterans.
By the way with CJ this would have been a certain win. Trading CJ took the soul out of this team. What was Loomis thinking? That Thomas said he wouldnt play until we got rid of CJ.

We. Have been a broken fan base since NOLA No call. I have had no expectations for two seasons and just don’t get excited for games like I once did.

sure, I get mad at crappy play like today, but I get over it very quickly. There is a lot bad going on right now with plenty of places to blame all over the organization.

Whoa! Is this confirmed??? Thomas saying he wouldn’t play unless CJ was gone?? I’d never heard that.

You are joking, right? Do I need to provide some offensive stats for you to prove how bad this team is, offensively? Or can you honestly do just a little bit of study?

1-2, and this is where we SHOULD be, when all of the offense was back and drafted Olave and signed Landry? Oline is one more year playing together. And this is where the Saints should be? This is one of the most ridiculous sentiments I have heard.

And the audacity to call fellow fans out as sad sacks, for having opinions is about as lame as it gets.

Atlanta actually have a brighter future than us. They’re a younger team with better prospects. We have ageing players at key positions and a head coach with a terrible record, zero personality, a GM who whiffs on football focused decisions and no first round draft pick. I’m trying to stay positive but I just can’t.

It’s all cyclical now with how the league is set up parity wise. We’ve been so good for so long now we are going to go down a bit. We will be back, but never to the level we had with Sean and Drew imo.
